Who of you think that Ireland are minnows? They have done something really stunning with the ‘SUPER POWER’ of cricket of that time. Yeah, West Indies were all out for just a score of 25 against Ireland. It was quite difficult for W Indies to reach even the total of 25, but hats off to the tail enders, a 13 runs partnership for 10th wicket led them to the total.
Cricket is an unpredictable game, we have seen many encounters which left our mouth wide open or nail-biting even becomes finger biting. This encounter is said to be the 1 of the interesting encounter,as W Indies side was at top of the game and means more then a entertainer for the game of cricket.
W Indies ruled the World Cricket and have produced mighty World record setters, but this day would always be noted as one of the most unfortunate for W.Indies cricket.
Goodwin does it good
Recalling the day, W Indies winning the toss decided to bat first, none of the batsman was successful to reach double figures, destruction credit goes to Irish skipper DE Goodwin, who took 5 wickets by just giving 6 runs and manages 2 wickets in 2nd innings by just conceding 1 run.
The match was played at Holm Field, Sion Mills, West Indies making tour of England and Ireland. It was a 1-day match, comprising of two innings,as cricket was not revolutionized by the new rules. Before the match decided, it was agreed that if both the innings were not completed, the winner would be the one on first innings. Ireland making 125 for 8 in 1st innings declared their innings.
